A GRAND STREET PARADE
The Eq,ual of Which Has Never
Been Seen West of tho
ENTHUSI'SM WITHOUT END
Over 60,000 Spectators (93 per ct
of whom were shouting for
Bryan) and 0,000 in line.
Local Goldbug Republicans take
on That "Worried
As They Viow the Vast Throng
Determined to Vote for Hon
A BIG DAY FOR BRYAN.
Tho whole north side of the
ciipitol grounds was filled with
people Tuesday afternoon to wit
ness tho preliminary notification
exercises of William Jennings Bry
an as the presidential nominee of
the silver party. They stood for
three hours with- the sun pouring
down upon them that they might
hear the next president speak upon
the all-important question of the
Mr. Bryan came upon tho plat
,form escorted by Mr. Norris Hum
phrey, followed by Mrs. Bryan and
Mr. George A. Grout of Cleveland,
Mr. E. E Brown introduced Mr.
Bryan. The audience fairly went
wild as their fellow townsman and
future president arose to speak.
The deafening cheers lasted for
several minutes. After tho crowd
had yelled itself hoarse and about
exhausted its lung capacity, Mr.
Bryan was given an opportunity to
speak. His voice was hoarse at
first, but became stronger as ho
spoke. He could be heard dis
tinctly to the very edge of tho
Mr. Bryan said ho would not talk
long as there were others present
who could present tho issues fully
as well as he, and he was trying to
save himself as much as possible.
He referred particularly to the
growth of the silver movement,
and said: "The sentiment in fa
vor of freo coinage is a growing
sentiment t It far surpasses my
expectations in the oast. Thoy
are going to he with you in your
fight to freo tho country from the
financial influence that has so long
dominated it. The same condi
tions exist in tho caBt as in the
west. Tho intense earnestness
that characterize tho campaign is
remarkable. People are earnestly
for us are they are earnestly
against us. There is no lukc
warmness about anybody.
"We have a financial system
that is injurious to tho great mass
of our people. Our republican
friends admit that it is not good
for us, but they insist that wo
must keep it until foreign nations
coiuo to our aid,
'The democratic platform de
clares for tho immediate restora
tion of tho money of tho constitu
tion. The republicans aro trying
U drag in other questions but there
can bo no questions until wo first
decide whether we can legislate for
ourselves or not.
Tho big corporations aro at
tempting to coerce and compel
their employees to vote in accord
ance with their instructions. Thoy
assert the right to determine how
those iu their employ shall work.
This is another great problem that
forces itself in this campaign. If
corporations am do this in one
instance they can do so in all. The
people create these corporations.
Did thoy intend that thoy should
oxorciso such power? If corporar
tions have no legal right to muko
such demands upon their em
ployees, they usurp the power and
becomo a dangerous power and
menace to our freo institutions.
"They say we will havo a flood
of silver nnd the gold will go out.
It would be . better to havo the
silver come in and drive the gold
out than have foreign financiers
come in and tako the gold out and
leave nothing in return.
"They want good money. So
do we. They . want a money so
good, so dear, that the poor man
can't get any of it."
(Space will not permit us to pro
duce tho whole spoech. )
Tho parado did not form until
nearly 3 o'clock. It started from
in front of tho Lincoln hotel.
Tho first division was headed by
Fred A. Miller, marshal of tho
day and his staff. Ho was follow
ed by tho Nebraska stato band.
Then camo tho Bryan homo
guards 200 sti-ong with S. S.
Whiting and staff. Following
this was tho Bryan carriage in
which were Mr. and Mrs. Bryan,
Chairman Groot of the notifica
tion committee. These wcro fol
lowed by other members of the
notification and reception com
15 carriages in all . L. C. Paco
and staff .next appeared followed
by more caraiages and floats.
One of the most conspicuous
floats was that arranged by Capt.
Hunter. It contained tho largo
framo which contained tho por
trait of Bryan which was burned
recently by tho republicans. F.
L. Rose came next with a dilap
idated umbrella bearing tho
words "Gold and Protection."
Tho Osceola band which consist
ed of 15 pieces made a good ap
pearance. Then camo tho Pal
myra free silver club followed by
about 500 on foot with appro
priate banners. The Cortland
cornet band and Cortland Bryan
club of 100 members showed up
well in the procession. Those
on horseback from West Lincoln,
Waverly and other points num
bered over 1,000. Tho Sprague
free silver club boro tho bannor
"Bryan Will Carry Canton,
Ohio." There were other floats
followed by more carriages. Tho
procession was nearly an hour in
passing. Following are some of
tho most striking inscriptions
carried iu tho parade:
"Havo you read Thurston on
Silver," "Freo silver will employ
labor." "Gold honest money?
Nit!" "We're coming, Billy Bry
an, many millions strong."
"True patriotism is not found in
Wall street." "God hatos a cow
ard." "Tho people will, not havo
anarchy, but will havo reform."
"Lombard street is not a friend
of Liberty." "By tho eternal wo
will seo who will rule, the monoy
power or tho people." America
for Americans," "England shall
not dictate." "Freo silver and
